Finally downloaded the Oade source of Richmond 85 and listened to it completely last night and this morning. Previously I had said that I had avoided listening to this show because I found the SBD and Dick's Picks version to be rather sterile and it took away from my memory of the night. Well, I sat down and gave the Oade some time and was completely taken back to that night and the magic that filled the arena. Now maybe I am biased, but I got a feeling from this AUD that the SBD's never mustered. I know it's a day late, but if you were like me and were not impressed by the SBD, go ahead and give the AUD a shot, maybe, like me, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

And for anniversary shows, the second night of Richmond on this date is no slouch either. The first set burns right out of the gate; very, very nice. The second set, however, is where the magic happens. The Aiko opener is a thing of beauty, with Jerry sounding like he doesn't want it to end, stretching it out gorgeously. And if you want a piece of magic, just check the China Doll>Drums>Space>Dew. Spine tingling. This is a case where probably due to fatigue, both physical and emotional, from the previous night, I didn't have a great memory of this night. But when I went back to this recording I realized just how good it was. Often overlooked because of the show the night before, this one more than holds it own and deserves proper credit. If you do listen to this show, please keep Wharf in your thoughts when you hit China Doll.

Hey SDH,
I have the SBD (non DP) copy of 11/1/85, and I only DL'ed it a few years ago from LAMA (before the removal) just to be a completist on 1985. I must say the setlist looked boring and non-jammy, and so it was a long time before I ever burned the SHN files to CD.
Wow!! - was I surprised!! A very hot show, and Jerry just burns up every song in Set Two. I've always said that 1985 doesn't get enough credit. There are at least a handful of shows from 85 that are really stellar and unique (The Greek shows) even though the year was weak overall.
cheers,
Dr. Flashback

SDH - you're really starting to spoil me. I'm really liking the 11/2 show, I've never checked it out before, another really nice AUD. Keep 'em comming man, your selections really are adding quite an improvement to my workday!

I will have to add '85 to the list.

For today I'll recommend 11-2-79

A glance at the setlist doesn't tell you much but this show definitely rocks

Mississippi Half Step-> Franklin's Tower, El Paso-> Mexicali Blues, Tennessee Jed, Lazy Lightning-> Supplication, Deal I Need A Miracle-> Bertha-> Lost Sailor-> Saint Of Circumstance-> Drums-> Not Fade Away-> Stella Blue-> Sugar Magnolia, E: Casey Jones

I also like the Oade source. In fact, all Oade recordings on here are great. I don't know who Oade is, but he must have had some really nice equipment.

i dont personally know who Oade is, but someone who used to live down the street from me knew them (they were the Oade brothers). They used to send him some of their tapes. apparantly the grateful dead need some technical help while on tour, and they stopped by one of the local electronics stores.. one thing led to another and two of the store's employees (the Oade brothers) started to work for/with the dead. they had high quailtly taping equipment and knowledge of how to get great sounding tapes. i think that they have a website that sells audio equipment like taping devices, etc.
